Rasmussen trends - April 22, 2009

From Rasmussen Wednesday;

The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Wednesday shows that 34% of the nation's voters now Strongly Approve of the way that Barack Obama is performing his role as President. Thirty-two percent (32%) Strongly Disapprove giving Obama a Presidential Approval Index rating of +2 (see trends). On the Generic Congressional Ballot, it’s all tied—39% for the Democrats, 39% for the Republicans.

Most voters continue to believe that the financial and auto bailouts were a bad idea, but the Political Class disagrees. Sixty percent (60%) now believe the federal government has too much power and too much money.

The last bit is one of those things that makes you shake your head.  The government may have too much power, but too much money?  Then why the deficit spending, why the inevitable taxation and why print money like it's toilet paper?  Shouldn't basic economics be a compulsory school course?

But other than that, it looks like the GOP has some positives to be thankful for.


  1. Yeah these are some good numbers for the GOP.

    I'm always amazed at the contradictory concepts these polls show the American people to believe. For example: 60% believe "Government has too much power" but 34% "strongly approve" with Obama.


  2. I think over time those discrepencies will self-correct, in other words If the too much power stays +60%, the strongly approve has to decline at least somewhat.


Disagreement is always welcome. Please remain civil. Vulgar or disrespectful comments towards anyone will be removed.
